of us said something about president obama, their deep concentration watching him. i don't know what this means for november. we're going to get serious economic reports between now and then and we'll know if the economy's slowing down or beginning to perk. the news we got this morning wasn't status factory, but the real question is how the voters look at this election. will they view it as a choice between two candidates or as an up or down referendum on president obama. soon after the financial crash of 2008 and 2009. president obama last night kept pushing the idea that this election is a choice among vote es rather than a referendum. 20 times he uttered a variation of choose or choice. >> when all is said and done, when you pick up that ballot to vote, you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. it will be a choice between two different paths for america. i'm asking you to choose that future and now, you have a choice. if you choose this path. the choice you face -- you can choose a future -- choose -- choice -- choice -- choice -- choices -- choose -- choose.
september 7. joe biden and barack obama accepting their party's nomination last night. president obama summing up his accomplishments. what he's accomplished so far and where he wants to take the country in the next four years. the goal of this convention for the democrats was to fire up the base and get them excited for the fall campaign. mission accomplished! we'll tell you all about last night's grand finale here in charlotte, north carolina. but we start off as always, let's find out the latest, today's current news update, lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hey, lisa, good morning. >> hi, bill. good morning everyone. bill is still there. most convention goers are packing up and heading home this morning after a rousing and emotional final night at the dnc in charlotte. president obama's speech has a convention hall at full capacity. officials had to turn away hundreds of people. nearly four hours before the president took the podium. it was not exactly the soaring rhetoric we're used to coming from mr. obama
to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things
criticized for is not having a narrative. not telling us what's and obama presidency would be like. i do not think we have any link here between the circumstances, what he has done, and what he will do. that picture is not there. >> to be fair, i feel like we got a little more from barack obama that we get from mitt romney on what the next four years will look like but i do not have a good understanding. >> i am not sure mitt romney knows what he wants to do and if he does, i do not think he wants to say much because that is his nature. he does not want to be held with his feet to the fire. i was old disconcerted about the things that obama was promising. i did not understand how he was going to get there. 1 million manufacturing jobs. he is throwing out these things that we still have not seen any jobs and we're getting more numbers tomorrow. how is he going to do things that he is not doing for four years? where are these jobs coming from? >> it is a good point. i was thinking that when he was going through a laundry list trade will have energy expansion and manufacturing jobs, we will
night president obama spoke at the democratic national convention to a thundering applause. he got all the points he wanted in there including good lines making fun of republicans idea of domestic political. >> obama: they want your vote, but they don't want you to know their plan. that's because all they had to offer is the same prescriptions they've had for the last 30 years. have a surplus try a tax cut. deficit too high? try another. feel a cold coming on? take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning. [applause] that ain't that the god's honest truth. that's all they've done since i've been alive. tax cuts and more tax cuts. i hope the president doesn't going along with them in the second term. he promised he would not. let's hold him to that promise. on foreign policy. >> obama: four years ago i promised to end the war in iraq. we did. [applause] i promised to refocus on the terrorists who attacked on 9/11, and we have. in 2014, our longest war will be over. al-qaeda is on the bath to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> cenk: hard to argue with that
, president obama accepting the party nomination for a second term. vice president joe biden nominated and accepting. here are the highlights of night three. >> the current right wing tea party dominated republican not only has hasn't learned from mistakes of the past they're determined to repeat them. we will not let that happen. >> one side of the campaign we have a president who has made america lead like america again. and what is there on the other side? an extreme candidate lacking the judgment and vision so vital to the oval office. the most inexperienced foreign policy to run for president and vice president in decades. >> and barack obama is the kind of leader my he father brought wrote bchl he does what is hard. he does what is right. >> congressman ryan says he wants medicare to be around for his grandkids. well... if that is the case, he had better vote for barack obama. >> this man has courage in his soul, compassion in his heart and a spine of steel. and, because of all of the actions he took, because of the polls he made and determination of american workers and unparall

(laughter) not because of what he said, but where he said it. jim? >> organizers have also decided that tomorrow's acceptance speech by president obama will have to move inside, scrapping plans to hold it in a huge football stadium. >> his speech is now being moved here to this smaller arena indoors. the campaign says the possibility of storms and
at the moment caused the most discussion during president obama's speech. top three, he defended role of government, he racked up an astonishing 37,000 tweets. when he went on the attack against medicare, or romney ryan plan, boom, 39,000. but the one brought the house down, i'm the president. when he said i'm not the candidate, i'm the president it was 43,000. that is a tremendous lot. but to get an idea of how big that is, let's take a look at some of the top tweets for the week. so... the top four tweeted moms for the speakers you have joe biden's big moment short of 18,000. bill clinton, 22,000. and there is the president head and shoulder as above the rest. they weren't all positive. back to you. >> thank you. >> and what a two weeks it's been. >> amazing. >> pleasure being alongside you like lice-wise. and there is a shout tout panels who work sod hard. -- so hard. there is an army of folk that's work harder than most of us do. >> that is it for us. remember as of tomorrow, 60 days until election day. our next big event, probably october 3. the first debate z they would co-have
't hear anything about jobs in president obama's speech last night. here are the real numbers. under obama, 200,000 fewer people working today than when he took office. 368,000 have given up hope in the last month alone. in the last three yeah years under obama, 3.5 million people given up hope. if you add that to those who dropped out of the workforce, the unemployment rate should be 11%. the labor force, lowest in 31 years. look at the chart on the next page. bob, you will moan when you see this. >> bob: is this going snob >> eric: still going on. b.h.o. under president obama the labor force dropped. number one is the lowest minute to the last 38 years. number among men the lowest in all of history. lowest labor participation rate among men more than ever. obama talk of recovery but i don't see it. >> kimberly: being that you are an expert in hangovers. what do you think? >> greg: that bothered me. i know hangover, you, sir, do not know hangovers. the people leaving the labor force, where are they going? did planned parenthood create generation after pill? what is happening to the countr
. >> ifill: tonight barack obama accepts his party's nomination for a second term. >> woodruff: presidential historians miesh yale beschloss and richard norton smith are standing by in washington. ray suarez is down on the floor. >> ifill: we go to the podium where caroline kennedy has just begin goon speak. >> fighting for jobs, giving hope to the hopeless and working day in and day out for the america he believes in. i was inspired by barack obama's vision for america, an america where we look out for one another wrrk we take responsibility for our sisters and brothers, and most of all for our children. back then i was inspired about it promise of barack obama's presidency. today i'm inspired by his record. [cheers and applause] over the past four years, we've had a president who has committed himself and his administration to the values that made america great. economic fairness, equal opportunity, and the belief that if each of us gives back to this country we love and all of us work together, there's no challenge we cannot overcome. [ applause ] those are the ideals that my father and
of lots of promises and lofty rhetoric made by the early obama presidency or by candidate obama and look at the broken promises. this is not an economic recovery. >> in a statement from the romney campaign, governor, they said for every new net job created 4 million americans gave up looking for work entirely. do they have a point? >> here's the point. paul ryan voted against every single jobs bill that president obama sent to the congress. americans aren't giving up. we're going to continue to move forward. but we really could make even faster progress if the republicans instead of trying to slow down our nation's recovery would vote for the thing that actually work to create more jobs because our best days are in front of us. this was a deep recession we were dealt. >> without a doubt it was a deep recession and without a doubt there's been a lot of difficulty in getting both sides to work together. the question is, how do you do that and you can do that? let me give you one example, governor. manufacturing jobs last month dropped by 15,000. last night we heard president obama promise
a corner. president obama asked voters to hang on and give him a second term. some 368,000 americans just quit hanging on and completely gave up looking for work last month. the august jobs report shows only 96,000 jobs were added to our economy last month. that's a whole lot less than expected. the unemployment rate fell to 8.1%, moving in the right direction but only because so many people gave up looking for work. only 63% of working-age adults are in the workforce, that is the lowest level since 1981. translates to nearly 9 million able-bodnear nearly 9 million able body deed adults not getting a paycheck. back then 275 jobs were ordered. it slumped to 245,000 in june. august 96,000. this news comes as the candidates kick their general election campaigns into high gear. we are waiting for reaction from president obama, he's in the key battle state of new hampshire speaking at this hourment he's been talking for a few minutes but has yet to mention the job report. if he does we'll check it out. mitt romney is attending a rally in iowa. earlier he spoke to bret baier about the jobs repo
, that is such an important question. politicians have to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from othe
american. it defines our responsibility as citizens that president obama talked about. we may not be in douglass' old party, but we're in the spirit of douglass when we stand for voter rights. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> thank you, charlotte. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start tonight with this impressive week in charlotte. there may be no explanation for it, but i've never seen such excitement in a political convention. it was in the faces of the people who stood at the edge of our stage, the loud roars when one of us said something about president obama, their deep concentration watching him. on our big screen as he spoke last night. i don't know what this means for november. we're going to get serious economic reports between now and then and we'll know if the economy's slowing down or beginning to perk. the news we got this morning wasn't satisfactory by anyone's standards. but the real question is how the voters look at this election. will they view it as a choice between
. >> join you tonight for the most important reason i can imagine, to make sure that barak obama is reelected president of the united states. [ cheers and applause ] four years ago, i was inspired by the way senator obama had lived his life, fighting for jobs, giving hope to the hopeless, and working day in and day out for the america he believes in. i was inspired by barak obama's vision for america, an america where we look out for one another, where we take responsibility for our sisters and brothers, and most of all, for our children. back then i was inspired by the promise of barak obama's presidency. today i'm inspired by his record. [ cheers and applause ] over the past four years, we've had a president who committed himself examine his administration to the values that made america great. economic fairness, equal opportunity, and the belief that if each of us gives back to this country we love and all of us work together, there is no challenge we can not overcome. [ cheers and applause ] those are the ideals that my father and my uncle fought for. those are the ideals i b
at this time. when president obama came into office in january of 2009, that month, we lost about 800,000 jobs. yes, there are those who would argue that the number of jobs added is clearly insufficient for this economy. but on the other hand, you have month after month for literally years now of job growth. if you want to oppose the political question of whether you are better or not -- better off or not, one could argue that we have job losses and now we have job gains. one could argue whether they are sufficient now and whose fault that is. host: comments from both mitt romney in his excedrin speech and barack obama on jobs, here is what both of them had to say. [video clip] >> this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two years. and now you have a choice. we can give more tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas, or we can start rewarding new plants that train new workers -- rewarding companies that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exp
losing jobs. but it's not enough. wolf, in fairness to the obama administration, we have created jobs in the private sector, which is where you want them created, for 30 months in a row. the trend is correct. this just isn't a big enough number. >> they did revise the previous two months to show that 40,000 jobs they thought had been created really weren't. isn't that right? >> that's correct. so every month we get revisions to the two prior months. in this case they were revisions lower. what that means is if president obama were to want to claim that he has made up for all the job losses since the day he took office, he needs another 260,000 jobs created in th next two months. there will be two more jobs reports before the election, the last one will be four days before the election. it's a milestone that doesn't matter to most people. and if you're unemployed it certainly doesn't matter to you. but it will give him the ability to say i inherited the worst economy since the eat depression and i made up for you can bee they achie ch. that, it will be a nice democratic ad the weekend
weekend. lou: good evening, i am lori rothman in for lou dobbs. more bad timing for president obama. a lackluster jobs report. hours after a big pitch to the dnc with just 60 days before the presidential election, an economy that appears to be stuck in neutral. second term aspirations. we take that up here tonight. also tonight, elaine chao offers her perspective on how to the this put this country back to work. also ahead, ben bernanke on the verge. kevin hassett is here and archbishop dolan during the dnc benediction last night. we will play the tape and let you decide. first, the obama and romney campaign. crisscrossing in iowa and vermont. >> we have been there and we have tried what they are selling. it didn't work then and it's not going to work now. we are moving forward. as was pointed out in the convention, there is a basic component missing from this plan. it's called math.
